New track-drying system “Saves the day” at Talladega
After debuting at Daytona International Speedway in February, Air Titan, NASCAR’s new track drying system, has made its way to other tracks around the country.
With the assistance of Ring Power’s Air Compressor team, Air Titan has been tested at Martinsville Speedway in Ridgeway, Va. and Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kan. The May 5 race at Talladega Superspeedway in Talladega, Ala. marked the first time Air Titan actually has been used during a Sprint Cup Series race. Air Titan shined, drying the track 45 minutes sooner than NASCAR officials estimated. USA Today even called the Air Titan a “new superhero.”
Air Titan utilizes compressed air to dry the track. The system was developed by NASCAR’s Research and Development center with the assistance of Ring Power and Sullair.
